: : I need some help in calculating the mmbtu rating of a steam boiler. Is there a formula for this? what knowns are used for the calculation
: First thing are you looking for an input or output? The output is easy, it takes ballpark 1,000 btu to turn 1 pound of water at 212 deg F into 1 pound of saturated steam. So if your steam output is 1,000 lbs/hr that is roughly 1 mmbtu output.
: Input is different because that is a function of the efficiency of the boiler. That will require more detail on your boiler
Looking for output. The boiler plate list 60,000 lbs/hr with a 250 mawp. The manufactur list the boiler as a 72.84mmbtu. My question is how did they come up with the 72.84mmbtu rating?
